Mom of boys. Lover of Harry Potter, Jane Austen and believes one can never own too many children's books!

4.5 / 7.0

I love the diversity of characters in the book, and there are lots of clever scenarios presented that showcase the beauties of libraries. I did find the repetition of the books catchphrase “Do NOT bring your dragon to the library.” a little annoying after a while, and some of the rhymes were a little awkward which tripped me up as a read-aloud, but overall it’s a cute concept!

Book-loving mommy-to-be! Recently enjoyed The Hobbit, Becoming, and The Marvelous Magic of Miss Mabel.

I thought this book was cute and fun, but a little repetitive and long. The illustrations are great and I love that it talks about how fun the library can be with the reading time, singing time, and different books available. Plus, dragons are always a fun addition, in my opinion. :)
